DIVORCE CASES

SHEATHER v. SHEATHER

At the Wagga District Court before Judge Coyle, Norman Edward Sheather of Wagga petitioned for a divorce from his wife Louisa Ann Sheather, on the ground of desertion for three years and upwards.

Mr. Brian Clancy (instructed by Messrs. J. C. Sheekey and Co.) appeared for the petitioner. There was no appearance of the respondent.

Sheather said that he was married to the respondent at St. John's Church Wagga, in 1919. They lived at Wagga for some time, and then went to Cur rawarna. They returned to Wagga, and he was employed by the Murrum bidgee Milling Co. When he was on night shift his wife would tell him that she was going to the pic tures. He discovered that she was going to dances in the country. He objected, but his wife continued to go to the dances. One day after his wife had been to a dance he spoke to her about it, and she said that she would do as she pleased. That day his wife left the house and did not return. He saw her later and asked her to return to him, but she declined. He wrote to his wife at Cootamundra asking her to return home, but she replied that she would not return .

Judge Coyle found the issue proved.2

Voyages

DateDetails
22 April 1838John Albury was a passenger aboard The Barque Woodbridge which sailed from Deptford, England, on Sunday, 22 April 1838 and arrived in Sydney, NSW on 15 September 1838 under Captain Dobson. The Surgeon Superintendant was Alexander Stewart and the following is his report on the voyage:

APRIL 1838
On the 22nd April 1838, I was appointed by Lord Glenelg (Secretary of State for the Colonies), as Surgeon Superintendent of the Emigrant ship "Woodbridge" bound for Sydney. Being completed with water and provisions the ship was dropped down from Deptford to Gravesend the 22nd of same (April), then the following day, 76 persons were embarked and 61 more on the 24th completing the number to be taken on board in the river (Thames). They were chiefly farm labourers from the counties of Sussex and Kent and generally healthy, but a few of the children had a pustular eruption on the face, said by the parents to have taken place after vaccination. In the afternoon of the 25th we got under weigh and again anchored in the sea reach, the winds becoming unfavourable and blowing strong. 26th 4.00pm got up anchor and made sail in the evening, the wind and the tide being against us, the ship was brought up at Mole. At noon on the 27th again weighed anchor, made all sails and having a fair breeze the ship came to anchor off Cowes, Isle of Wight at 11am on the 28th April. On the 2nd May embarked 130 emigrants from Wiltshire, the greater number of these were also farm servants and married with families. The day after the last came aboard I found out that some of the children were suffering from whooping cough, but with one exception, of a mild character. No means could be adopted for the separation from the healthy and I am happy to say no serious consequences followed. Only a few cases subsequently occurred and these were very mild requiring some medical treatment. On the 7th May at 7.00am weighed and made all sail running through The Needles with a modest breeze and fine weather.
MAY 1838
During the month of May the weather was fine with moderate breezes. The thermometer averaged at noon, 63 degrees, maximum 83 degrees, in latitude 7 degrees north, minimum 50 degrees off Cowes, nine days of which rain fell, chiefly near the equator and in heavy showers of short duration. Winds were 7 days NE, 1 day NEbE, 1 day NNE, 1 day NW, 1 day NNW, 3 days SW, 1 day SSE, 1 day SEbE, 3 days E, 1 day EbS, 7 days ENE, 1 day EbN, 3 days variable with calms. 48 cases were put on the sick list principally obstipatic and dysenteric. Many of the females suffered much from sea sickness, of whom 30 were cured and two children died, one of inanition and the other from dysentery.
JUNE 1838
June for the most part, fine with moderate and variable winds. Thermometer averaged 77 degrees, maximum 85 degrees in a latitude 4 north, minimum 66 degrees in latitude 28 degrees south. 17 days of which rain fell in heavy transient showers with occasional thunder and lightning. Winds 1 day NE, 9 days SE, 3 days SSE, 1 day SEbE and 13 days variable with calms. Added to the sick list 55, cured 54, two children died of dysentery,the same diseases prevailed as the last month.
JULY 1838 July, on the 21st of this month, finding the bowel affections continuing on unabated and also with symptoms of scurvy making their appearance, I judged it necessary for the benefit of the health of the emigrants to put into some port to enable me to procure fresh provisions. Accordingly I wrote to the Master of the ship requesting him to take her to the nearest convenient harbour for that purpose. On the same day we arrived at Simmons Bay, Cape of Good Hope, where I purchased 2501 pounds of beef and mutton and half that quantity of mixed vegetables, having also taken on board 8 tons of water. No fruit was available. We proceeded on our passage on the 26th. The weather this month was more unsettled, the winds being stronger and a good deal of thick foggy atmosphere. The 29th and the 30th days were particularly thick and muggy with torrents of rain and much thunder and lightning, which so injured our remaining fresh beef that a survey was held upon it and 887 pounds were thrown overboard, being unfit for use. The thermometer averaged 60 2/3 degrees, maximum 66 degrees at 29 degrees south latitude, minimum 56 degrees in the latitude 34 degrees south. Nine days of rain fell with the exception of the two days stated above in moderate passing showers. 34 were added to the sick list, 32 cured and 4 died, 3 children of dysentery and 1 of aptha of the mouth and fauces.
AUGUST 1838
August,the weather was very unsettled and the decks were wet, but no injurious effects to the health of the people. The sick list, remarkably diminished since the issue of fresh provisions. Thermometer averaged 53 degrees, maximum 64 degrees in latitude 39 south, minumum 49 degrees in latitude 38 south. 19 days of rain fell in transient but heavy showers with occasional hail. The winds chiefly westerly, suddenly shifting around to the north and south, blowing strong with occasional gales and thick weather. The winds were 2 days N, 2 days NNE, 1 day NE, 4 days NW, 2 days NNW, 2 days NWbW, 8 days WNW, 2 days WSW, 3 days WbS, 2 days SSW, 1 day SW and 1 day variable and calm. 16 were added to the sick list, 19 cured and a married female died from the debilitating effects of sea sickness.
SEPTEMBER 1838
September, on the 15th, the Woodbridge anchored in Sydney Cove and the morning of the 18th, the emigrants were disembarked. With the exception of one child, all were healthy. The weather this month was generally fine, with light and moderate breezes, no rain. The Thermometer averages 50 1/2 degrees, maximum 67 degrees in Sydney Cove, minimum 48 degrees in latitude 40 south. 2 added to sick list, 29 discharged, one of whom was a married woman died of dysentery.
